Mr. Grant: NBC5 makes it permanent with former freelancing meteorologist

Grant Johnston, a weekend freelancer in recent weeks for NBC5, has officially joined the station's meteorologist team.

He'll now be the regular weathercaster on the station's afternoon and evening weekend newscasts while also continuing to pursue a master's degree at Dallas Theological Seminary.

Johnston left Oklahoma City's KFOR-TV after seven years to enroll at Dallas Theological Seminary after he said he heard a calling from God.

NBC5 chief meteorologist David Finfrock praised Johnston's "years of experience forecasting and storm chasing in the heart of Tornado Alley. He's bringing great depth of experience to our local team. I'm glad he's here."

The newcomer has a degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Missouri and began his career in meteorology at KMIZ-TV in Columbia, Missouri.
